Stop looking, Isabelle is the absolute best. Just book her now before someone else books her and you miss out. She is nice, kind, happy and knowledgeable.

Our second half-day with Isabelle started at Ste Chapelle on the Ile de la Cite, continued to Notre Dame, and ended with an overview of the Latin Quarter, and the best ice cream in Paris. At the end of our time, Isabelle installed us in a lovely sidewalk cafe. We learned so much and were overwhelmed with the beauty of Ste Chapelle. I highly recommend this kind of a tour which was tailored to our pace and desires. Thank you, Isabelle and toursbylocals.

My group of 4, including my 10 year old granddaughter, could not have been happier with our private tour of the Louvre with Isabelle. She is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and flexible. She gave us a perfect mix of history, art history and local color, and answered our questions patiently. This was such a great introduction to the world museums for my granddaughter that I am sure she will be searching out more experiences like this one. Thank you Isabelle!!!

Isabella took us on a fantastic tour of the city. She arrived early at our hotel and we were off to meet Paris. First was a lesson using the Metro systems. Learning we didn't want to go up in the Eiffel Tower and the fact that in two days she would guide us through the Louvre, she quickly created a grand tour, starting with the Mont Martre to enjoy the panoramic views of the city and the fun art. A fun rest of day with history delivered with enthusiasm and great wit. Can't wait til our next time.

My 20 year old daughter and I toured with Isabelle and had an amazing time! She took the time to get to know us and then tailored the tour to what interested us most. She is easy going and fun to be around, but also very knowledgeable about the city and the sights. I would highly recommend Isabelle to anyone!

If you have read my previous reviews of Isabelle, you know that I am a huge fan! She is an incredible guide. Her English is impeccable and she is able to answer any questions you might have about neighborhoods, food, customs, art, music or history. She is quite easy-going and has a terrific sense of humor. The time I spent with her flew, because she was always regaling me with interesting historical facts. She allows you to go at your own pace and customizes the tour just for you.

I cannot say enough nice things about Isabelle. We missed our train to Paris, and were running late. She waited for us at the hotel, and was happy to begin the tour on our time. We only had a short time in Paris, and she catered our tour to see exactly what we wanted- we walked, took public transportation, saw most of the amazing sights and learned so much about Paris. I only wish we had more time. Isabelle was also very helpful in getting food for our food allergic son. Thank you Isabelle!

I was with Isabelle for 2.5 days and she is absolutely marvelous. She speaks impeccable English, has a vast knowledge of the art and culture of Paris and made my first visit to Paris one that I'll never forget! From email communications prior to my arrival she coordinated all that I wanted to do so there was never a wasted moment. The pace of the trip was perfect, and I felt that I was seeing each neighborhood like a local. If there were a 10-star rating, I would give her 10 stars!

We had a wonderful time with Isabel! She was the perfect guide for us, full of local and inside information, was flexible and able to provide us with an exceptional experience. We'd been to Paris before but she was able to find new things to show us and new information to provide. We would engage her again on future trips!

We had the pleasure of having Isabelle as our tour guide for an afternoon in Paris. Isabelle is a very nice woman with an engaging and charismatic personality. She loves what she does, and it shows. She has a beautiful smile, and she knows the history of Paris extremely well. She navigated us through the St Germain des Pres area and the Luxembourg Gardens with ease. We learned a lot about this beautiful city from Isabelle. We highly recommend her! Thank you so much

We wanted to meet a Parisian with passion and enthusiasm and that is exactly what we got with Isabelle. We had her undivided attention while walked around Notre-Dame de Paris, Sainte-Chapelle, an enlightening café break and ended up at the extraordinary Louvre Museum. Our only experience of French culture has been via the media so this short time with our charming local guide was an excellent introduction. Thank you Isabelle for your time, historical cultural experience and patience.

Thoroughly enjoyed our guided tour. Isabelle is very friendly, extremely knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about the sites, history and culture of Paris. This comment is nothing to do with Isabelle, but next time we would opt for a 2 or 3 hour tour as 4 hours is a long time on a continuous walking tour.

Our half day in Paris with Isabelle was one of the highlights of our 2 weeks in Europe. Isabelle made us feel like we were family. She has a marvellous and pleasing personality. Isabelle has a great sense of humour and a complete grasp of the English language. She showed my wife and I the real Paris we could find only with a Parisian. Thank you again Isabelle.

Wonderful day with Isabelle. Perfect introduction to Paris for our first time visit. Got to see all the major tourist attractions as well as learn the best options for using public transit, restaurants, and local customs. She is very knowledgeable on Paris history and her English is excellent. Definitely a 5 star plus experience.

We are still talking about the wonderful day we had with you in the Louvre and Orsay. Your knowledge and great interest in art made you more than simply a guide. We felt we had a real art history and appreciation course! Not only did you teach us a lot about art and artists, but the way you navigated us through the buildings and lifts was wonderful! You certainly showed us highlights with a minimum of walking and steps. Thank you for being understanding of our limitations!

Isabelle was great and delivered exactly what we were looking for. We were on our 10 year anniversary and wanted an overview of the city before a week-long vacation. She was at our hotel, on-time, and we walked for 4-hours while she explained everything including the sites, history and all of our questions. She was awesome and did a great job. Not much more to say, she does her job well and we were thrilled!

Isabelle is a wonderful guide! Our train was delayed by an hour and she waited for us at the Paris Nord station until we arrived. We took a four walk along the Seine visiting historic landmarks on both side of the river. She gave us an insiders view of Notre Dame and finished up our day with a ice cream at a local shop. Isabelle was capable and willing to answer all our questions. I highly recommend her as a guide. Tim

Isabelle was very helpful in our 4 hr tour of Paris. She was able to accommodate our needs. Our daughters indicated that they were pleased with her and that she was not boring. The sights were well selected and she was very knowledgeable of the city. We were able to hop on and off public transportation after she suggested that we buy the one-day pass and it paid for itself. We are definitely using her the next time we are in Paris.

We liked everything about our tour guide, Isabelle. She was very easy-going, friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. We went to places we would never have gone to by ourselves and it would have been our best day of the 4 days we were in Paris if our daughter had been with us. She was sick that day so had to stay in the hotel. We will definitely recommend Isabelle and Tours by Locals to our friends.
